Robert Rodriguez „Fire and Ice“-ConceptArts

Entertainment Weekly hat diese Concept Arts und die offizielle Synopsis: Robert Rodriguez’s sexy concept art for ‚Fire and Ice‘ (via io9).
At Comic-Con, director Robert Rodriguez announced plans to create a live-action film of Fire and Ice, based on the work of Frazetta, who died last year at age 82. The artist’s work previously inspired an animated version of the story in 1983, directed by Ralph Bakshi (The Lord of the Rings, the 1960s Spider-Man TV cartoon). That Fire and Ice is beloved among fantasy aficionados and grown-up kids of the 1980s, but has largely fallen out of the pop-culture consciousness. […]
“I want it to look like you just stepped into one of his paintings, where you get to see his world, and how he saw people, anatomy, and composition and color,” Rodriguez told EW. “It will feel like it’s real, but not real. It’ll be his reality. He saw things differently. He painted from his imagination. He didn’t take a photograph and just paint it.”
